Our comics camp takes place in the middle of the southeast Alaska rainforest. It’s a three-night retreat for working artists to connect, learn, explore and relax. There’s a loosely organized schedule of workshops and conversations along with plenty of tromping around in the woods and hanging out.
The campground is a nice balance of rustic and civilized. We’ll be tucked away in the trees but still have access to flushing toilets, hot water for showers and even a camp cook. We’re going to have campfires, board games and all the fun camp things along with presentations, workshops and discussions led by our guest artists.
The comics camp is open to professional and aspiring artists of all stripes with a strong lean towards comics and visual storytelling. We’re happy to have game developers, authors, musicians and filmmakers involved as well as sequential artists, cartoonists and animators. It’s marshmallow, friendship and inspiration time.
The cost of the camp is $650. This includes lodging for three nights at the campground plus camp meals and transportation to and from downtown Juneau. If you would like to exhibit at the convention, you also receive a shared exhibition space. Financial aid is available to camp applicants who need it.
